These classes are virtual and will be held weekly at 6 PM PST on Tuesday. To make full use of the program it’s important entrepreneurs can be there for a majority of the classes. But we understand life happens so you it’s okay if you miss a couple. The final Demo-Day Pitch Event will be a hybrid event, with the physical location being in East Palo Alto.
This program is best suited for those with businesses that are in the early stages of establishment, with either a fleshed-out business model or legally established (LLC, company-formation, etc.) If you are still ideating and figuring out your business idea, we recommend taking our Intro to Hustle Class or Hustle II: Branding offered for free!
Entrepreneur participants will learn Lean Startup theory and gain invaluable hands-on experience and feedback that will help them fast track their careers in Entrepreneurship. This engagement will be facilitated by Streetcode Academy and top entrepreneurial talent. Throughout the program entrepreneurs will expand their knowledge-base in entrepreneurship, push their business to new heights, and grow their network with entrepreneurs that have launched their own businesses as well as others. Some other benefits include:
- $1,000 in funding
- Access to StreetCode database of business-development & VC opportunities
- An entrepreneur in residence mentor to meet with bi-weekly.
- Invitation to pitch at our final Shark-Tank style Demo Day
